First Chapter Tuesdays/Teaser Tuesdays - December 15th

Every Tuesday Diane at Bibliophile By the Sea hosts First Chapter First Paragraph Tuesday Intros, where we share the first paragraph or (a few) of a book we are reading or thinking about reading soon. Care to join us?


If you'd like to play along on Teaser Tuesdays, just click the button above.

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Anyone can play along! Just do the following:

* Grab your current read
* Open to a random page
* Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page
* BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away! You don’t want to ruin the book for others!)
* Share the title & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!

This week's book...

First chapter...

If looks could kill, the plumbing inspector giving me the bad news would have been in big trouble. "What do you mean there's a crack in the water line?" I said. "That's just not possible."

"Right here." He pointed. "You're going to have to replace this whole piece."


"I have proof. I heard a noise and found...You need to come down here. It'd be better if I showed it to you. Then we can turn it over to the police and get to the bottom of this whole thing."

What do you think? Would you keep reading?


  1. Oh yes! A cozy that involves a pub & beer? Sounds like fun.

  2. Oh that one sounds good, love cozies.

  3. It amazes me how many fun covers and titles they come up with for cozies:) sounds good Yvonne.

  4. I can't resist a murder mystery. My teaser is from a romance novel with a really twisty myst'ry, The Snow Angel by Lulu Taylor: http://wp.me/p4DMf0-14R

  5. I can't resist a murder mystery. My teaser is from a romance novel with a really twisty myst'ry, The Snow Angel by Lulu Taylor: http://wp.me/p4DMf0-14R

  6. That is the question. I've been reading a lot of Cozies lately, as you know, lol.

    It's back to the classics for my TT this week though with The Octopus: A Story of California by Frank Norris at http://wp.me/pZnGI-sc

  7. That first paragraph was a nice set-up. It made me want to find out more. I'd keep reading.

  8. I like the opening to this cozy. "If looks could kill" hints at a murder, doesn't it? Your teaser makes me wonder what she found!
    My Tuesday post features THE JOURNEY BACK – A Doublesight Story.

  9. Ooh, love the sound of this one...except nobody wants to hear about a crack in the water line. Love the cover, too.

    Here's mine: “OUT OF ORANGE”

  10. Nice teaser. Cozies are so much fun and they seem to be in endless supply. My teaser comes from Killing Trail by Margaret Mizushima this week. Happy reading!

  11. Who will win that argument? Plumbers are expensive. I like the cover. It's a kitty cover.

  12. I love a good mystery! I hope you're enjoying it :D

  13. This does sound like an engaging cozy! I hope you enjoy it, Yvonne.
